Fantasy is allowed, but not fantasy about dragons and so on. Stories, real or made up about ancient warriors like in 1000. A time when war-painted bards sang about heroic battles, myths and romantic adventures at sea. A time when the god of war Turisas reigned old nations. The music is drenched with Folk, due to the presence of violin and accordion. Which guarantees the sound of old times in the louder tracks as in the humppa songs.
In 2011 the band releases a CD with which they go in a much more mainstream direction. In the same year 2 members leave the band and the accordion is replaced by keys.
